Everything you need to know about the Caran d’Ache Timegraph
Pens and watches
Watch lovers are often pen lovers and vice versa, so Caran d’Ache has created an object that will appeal to both of them in the form of the Caran d’Ache Timegraph, a fountain pen that features a mechanical watch.
Caran d’Ache Prestige Editions
The Geneva-based Caran d’Ache has been making writing instruments, crayons and exceptional objects since 1915. Its Prestige collection is a line of creations inspired by the world of watchmaking and the Timegraph is the latest edition to this elegant range of objects with the incorporation of a mechanical watch inside the body of a fountain pen.
Research and development
The miniature mechanical movement inside the fountain pen was made by the prestigious Manufacture LTM S.A. based in Fleurier, Switzerland and took two years of research and development to complete. The movement is ultra-flat and is protected by sapphire crystals with anti-reflective coatings both front and back. The movement has a 40-hour power reserve.
High-end writing instrument
The fountain pen measures 15mm wide with a length of 151mm when closed and 137.50mm when open. The metal parts are plated with palladium and the black parts are coated with black PVD. The nib comes in 18-carat gold and the owner can order his or her own size.
Black lacquered box
The Caran d’Ache Timegraph comes in a black lacquered box complete with its own ink well. It is available on order only.
